Busily working on dramas one after the other, Yang Zi (杨紫) has recently agreed to star in Chinese aerospace drama The North of the Space <苍穹之北>. Lay Zhang Yixing (张艺兴) is offered to play the male lead and is currently reviewing the offer with great interest. An acclaimed supporting cast are also expected to join, which raised anticipations of a high-quality production. Once the cast is confirmed, the series is said to begin filming this month.
Centered on illustrating the aerospace industry and the work of engineers, The North of the Space revolves around the Beidow R&D department consisting of An Fucheng, Wu Tong, and Xia Feixue as core team members. Despite having different personalities, the trio are focused on their mission to design a new satellite system.
If Yixing accepts the offer, he will likely have a slow-burn romance with Yang Zi, in which they will progress from colleagues to lovers across 20 years. Both will portray their characters from 25-year-olds to 45-year-olds.
The potential pairing has been fairly supported by netizens who saw their compatibility and comfortable interactions during variety shows such as Back to Field Season 5 <向往的生活5>.
